Professor X is Dead Yet Again
This makes me madder than I can possible tell you. Apparently he dies at the end of the recent X-Men crossover Messiah Complex, which I will now never read. What is this, like the eighth or ninth time this incredibly powerful psychic has kicked it? How insanely unimaginative do you have to be to kill Professor X in an X-Men comic? How genuinely insane do you have to be to believe it means anything? How crazy do I have to be to be giving a shit? (Via Newsarama)

Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others.
